A friend recently sent me photos of her ducklings enjoying their first outdoor swim. The photos reminded me of geese we used to have. They totally enjoyed enjoyed their kiddie pool baths. I'd clean the tub and fill it with sparkling clear water. They'd climb in, probably completely dismayed by the unusual invisible wetness, and immediately set out to remedy the situation, leaning over the edge, filling their bills with mud, and dabbling away. I can only assume there was a goosey sigh of relief as clear water gave way to brown poopy muck. Obviously my idea of what constitutes a pleasant swim was radically opposed to theirs.
And ducklings in their little pan agree!
